Where wild minds come to rest
I'm new here. Joined this site because I have MD (surprise? :b). I’ve been reading some of the posts and would like to write something myself, but I don’t really know what to write. Soeh … I guess I’ll tell a bit about myself?
Maybe it would be interesting to see if any of you have had the same “lifestyle” as me or what you call it.
When I was a child and began in school I didn’t get many friends and was always an outsider. When we were playing games I always got…Continue
Hey, I was wondering if there was a link between MD and IQ. Since I'm always looking up things about psychology, I looked up characteristics that are often associated with having a high IQ. I've never taken an IQ test and the one I did only had 10 questions which I got a 9/10 on but still I don't think a small online test like that can really tell me my IQ. Anyways, I was looking at characteristics of "gifted" or people with high IQs. And I found that a lot of the characteristics applied to…Continue
Today ,from the start of the day i do alot of daydreaming.Now getting sick of this habbit.I my idealogy it's a curse for me.Sorry (that's my opinion) according to my circumstances.I am so lonely really want to get out of this fake world.I am deprive of real feelings and life.Nowadays i am doing exessive mdd.That's not good.Now seriously thinking of for a regular treatment of this illness.I am tired of this situation now don't want to fight for more which makes me weak.
So, it's been a while since I've written one of these and I thought I might make one for the fun of it. I'm not even sure if anyone will read it, but I find them extremely gratifying, so here goes.
I started the day with another addition to my neglected dream journal; it was a strange dream and it got me thinking: Why do you (or me, at least) never have dreams of normal things? Something like watching television when nothing's really on, except that show that's not…Continue
Okay, I was about to start working on an assignment that was due yesterday or earlier needs to be handed in tomorrow; I was at the kitchen table and there was no noise except the rain and the clock, and I was able to concentrate, and get into a good frame of mind. I wrote one line, and my sister got out of bed and came to talk to me about useless stuff (The album art for 30 Seconds to Mars' new album and single.) I managed to get her away…Continue
Do you think the game called Catch Phrase would be good therapy for people with MD? It seems to be that socializing is the exact opposite of day dreaming. I think Catch Phrase would callenge any MDer.
I have enjoyed my dreams, and now I find myself not having the time I would like to do my dreaming. In the past, my dreams come, I will play them out in my head for awhile, sometimes a couple months, and then I move on. Maybe this one that I am on now will do the same thing, I don't know, it is new.The problem with this dream is, it not only involves real people, but I find myself wondering what if it were to one day become real. There is one person I have been dreaming about now for about…Continue

I'm just curious if anyone with MD has ever video taped themselves daydreaming. Periodically I set up a camera on a tripod and record myself for about 30 minutes and watch it back. It's trivial, but I learn a lot about how MD may look to an outsider. Watching playback of my behavior helps me realize what I'm doing, how much time I waste doing it and what I could've been doing instead.

I've joined the site today and thought I'd just write an entry with a bit about myself and why I joined. Ever since I can remember I have had an overactive imagination. I first noticed that I was different from everyone else, when at the age of about 11, my friends lost interest in 'make-up' games (where you basically pretend to be different people) but I didn't lose the interest. I would just play them by myself in the playground and would have carried on in secondary school if I wouldn't…Continue
I am not going to say that I am fully cured, but I have found out a remedy that was a great help in reducing my DD spells!! My biggest problem was always catching myself and then finding productive things to think in its place. But after I took on this habit, it really opened my eyes in how much stronger my mindset is to be in control!! It is not therapy, no pill....something you probably would never even consider in a million years....
I've just lost interest in my characters and the worlds I've created. This has been going on for months even. I really am at the point of giving up the daydreaming. In fact, I feel like I can achieve so much more if I give it up, and I really want to just let go.
The only thing is it's become such a habit I'm not sure how to stop. Does that make sense? For me it once started as a coping mechanism has twisted my mind (I guess you can say) to a new type of thinking pattern. Basically my…Continue
I have suffered from this since at least early teens.Possibly longer.I had an overactive imagination as a child and would act out movies after watching them.My mother thought it odd and would tell me to stop and that I was being silly so i would hide this activity.maybe why it became MD??? Could this be a reason?? So it has continued on into my 40's.Althought it has changed and became less of a time consuming thing.Maybe because as we age we have less to fantasize about?I do notice it can be…Continue
